Ethel LOCKWOOD and Florence & Thomas OLIVER


Well-known member
Dunedin, New Zealand
Hello all.

I have an ancestor named Ethel Mary LOCKWOOD, b 1892. She was living with her mother in the 1901 census in London, and then marries in Portsmouth in 1915. Ethel's mother died in 1909, and I had found two Ethel Mary Lockwoods in the 1911 census, one a servant and one found for me by someone on this forum, so I never knew which record was the right one. All I have for that second one are 'in the same house as Florence Minnie OLIVER (45) and Thomas OLIVER (44) in West Ham'. (Ethel's name is misspelt as Etehl)

Can anyone tell me more details about that 1911 census record, e.g what was Thomas's occupation, what was Ethel's relationship to head of house?

I have just twigged that Ethel's daughter Edna married a Denis Albert OLIVER (recorded variously as Dennis, Denis, and Albert Dennis) in 1941, and am slightly excited that he could be related to the Olivers that her mother *might* have been staying with in the 1911 census.

Is anyone able to see if the Florence and Thomas Oliver in question had any children with them in the 1901 or 1891 censuses? Any help much appreciated!
